A different twist on the traditional half-mast drink. Grenadine syrup is used instead of cranberry juice and more tequila is added. Overall, it's a great summer drink to be enjoyed all year round.
Sweet and sour mix can be purchased online.
I served this cocktail to a a group of friends, who had various tastes. It was a hit with everyone. Perfect balance of sweet/sour taste. Pretty pink color, and it was the only one out of several recipes we tasted that earned a second pitcher request. Use a good quality grenadine, it is the key flavor componet in this drink. Will keep this recipe as a permanent favorite/ - 19 May 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Very good. I don't know if I've had anything like this before. I really enjoyed this. Second one I made, I added an additional finger of tequila. - 04 Apr 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Don't know if it's becuase of the brand of sweet and sour I used (Daily's); but there was way too much sweet and sour for my taste. I ended up adding water to dilute the overwhelming pungency of the sweet and sour. - 30 Dec 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
